Event Description:
The International Sponge Symposium (ISS) is the single periodic event with a focus on Porifera, which is worldwide in scope. This event gathers researchers, students and industry experts on a diverse set of specialities which have sponges as the basic models for investigation (biogeography, biotechnology, chemistry, ecology, paleobiology, pharmacology, systematics). This will be the 7th Symposium, following on earlier meetings held in London (1968), Paris (1978), Woods Hole (1985), Amsterdam (1993), Brisbane (1998) and Rapallo (2002).
